Just bought this in Blackpool. It's amazing. Allows you to smash a glass like the large stage thingy in a close up setting.

Ok, so its a small electtronic device housed in a card case. The device has a 15 to 45 second timer on it so you can work it around your presentation.
Up to now the effect of breaking a glass required the use of a special table or a device inserted in a tray usually of prominent size electronic crasher produces the same effect, but with a small device that may be hidden in a card case or a packet of cigarettes, a book or in any place you prefer. electronic crasher is an electro-mechanical devise 100% reliable.
Now the price: well, it's not cheap. Cost me 108 pounds at Blackpool 2 days ago but its not on their web site yet http://www.bazardemagia.com so don't know where you can get it. Is it worth it. In a word, YES, only having it one day I haven't had loads of use out of it yet, but tried it out on my friends and a few others. Wow, the reaction I got it is real magic. I can be at the other side of the room and perform this. I done it straight after Perplexing Pen and I couldn't of dreamed of a better reaction. I think the price of this gem will be retrieved from the first gig you perform it at.

Rvigon,

Thank you for the update. Sounds very interesting.
Didn't think it would be cheap but I'm definitely interested in it now.

Best,
Matt

Are people suspicious of the glass ON the box? maybe a way around it would be if you performed the rising cards out of the glass, and then perplexing pen. Maybe if you could time the perplexing pen right, the box could be set to smash the glass after the pen has fallen. Now I want one! when are they available, and for how much?

Oh yes, this looks cool! The ad states you can put the gizmo inside a card pack, cig pack or book. My question is: Do you have to do any major alterations on whatever you put this thing in such as cutting slits, holes or whatever?

Could you just put the gimmick under the close up mat?
The demo looks amazing by the way.

How accurate is the timer? 15-45 seconds. Is that the range it could go or is set via digital read out to be exact?

Is the thickness of the glass a matter ?

I just took a look at the video demo of this effect. All I can say is....
***...why didn't I THINK OF THAT?!!
I think this is a GREAT improvement on an old classic. The portabiltity factor as well as the new conditions it can be performed under.
Clearly, you will need some type of Acrylic Cover for this if spectators are close...maybe one that can fold up?
The set-up of the glasses, with card box sandwiched between, makes sense as well as it elevates the glass and makes an interesting display.
I am putting this on my "to get" list!

Is there an audible noise of the mechanism when it is activated and crashes against the card card, etc. (other than the noise of the glass shattering, of course)? I would also like to know how wide and long the slit in the card case has to be in order to accomodate the mechanism? Would the slit be noticeable close-up? It does sound like a very promising and practical mechanism to accomplish a classic effect close-up. Although there have been promises made before on electronic , close-up devices that have yet been delivered ie. PSI Sharpie.

Michael,
I do not think it would be a problem even if the gimmick made as noise. The glass shattering would easily be enough to cover any noise...unless it is a ridiculously loud gimmick which I doubt.
Just my goofy opinion.
